Bench Press

I've gotten over the mess that was squats on Sunday evening and got down to business on the bench.

Warm Up
Plyometric Push Ups - 2 sets/12 reps.
Bench Press - 2 sets/12 reps/135lbs, 1 set/8 reps/225lbs.

Power Phase
Bench Press - 5 sets/1 rep/285lbs.
*5 minutes rest after each set*

Pump Phase
Bench Press - 2 sets/3 reps/225lbs, 4 sets/4 reps/225lbs.
*2 minutes rest after each set*

Core Work
Stability Ball Sit Ups - 4 sets/20 reps.

Nice recovery from Sunday. I'm not sure if I'll compete at the up coming Provincials. There isn't much time left and I haven't really started a pre competition program. I feel like I'm at a cross roads and I need to take some time to figure out what direction to go. I'll continue with the program and improve my overall strength over the long term.
